VSC annunciator flashing while driving straight on dry pavement at 70+ mph...!?!

    This happened today after driving on muddy/snowy dirt forest road in 4hi. When I got back onto the interstate in 2hi, and got up to around 70, the VSC light started flashing. I couldn't feel or hear any actuation of the abs system to the driveline, and the siren wasn't beeping like it usually does when the VSC kicks in during a lapse in traction...the annunciator light was just flashing. It didn't happen below 70mph...just above. Any thoughts?

    I'm lifted 1.75" in front, 1.5" in rear...but since I was driving straight I can't see that this had anything to do with the normal yaw sensor calibration issue.

    p.s., I did a search but couldn't find anything related to this specific symptom.

    Seems to be all good now, but I haven't driven that fast again since it happened. I figured it was something like mud doing something to confuse it.

    Yeah, I'd say see if it goes away after you clean everything up. Check while you're down there and make sure the ABS sensor wires didn't get damaged. They're routed pretty well, but they're delicate.
